Dr. Natalie Rosen is a registered clinical psychologist who provides sex therapy to individuals and couples. Sex therapy can help you with problems you may experience during sex (like a lack of arousal, difficulties with orgasm, erection, or pain during intercourse), a lack of interest in sexual activity or a difference between partners in their desire for sexual activity, or bothersome thoughts and feelings about your sexuality or sexual problems.
In sex therapy, you will discuss your sexual concerns and expectations with the aim of addressing factors that interfere with your sexual life and factors that may enhance your sexual satisfaction. You may also be asked to complete homework exercises either alone or with your sexual partner(s) to help resolve the problem and/or enhance your sexual life.
Her therapeutic approach uses evidence-based treatment strategies and is primarily cognitive-
behavioural, though she sometimes integrates other approaches such as acceptance and mindfulness.
In Dr. Rosen’s experience, it is helpful for both members of the couple to attend therapy together because both are typically affected by the sexual problem. However, individuals can also benefit even when their intimate partner is unable to attend.
Clients of all genders, sexual orientations are welcome.
Dr. Rosen is currently offering a limited number of appointments on Thursday mornings for sex and couples therapy, beginning in September 2016.
Her office is located at the Atlantic Artificial Reproductive Technologies (AART) clinic at 1535 Dresden Row, Suite 213, Halifax (in City Centre Atlantic, above Pete’s Frootique).
You can book an appointment by calling AART directly at 902.404.8600 or by emailing at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Physicians can send referrals for their patients via fax to 902-404-8601.
